MG7520 won't scan


I was scanning just yesterday with my MG7520 and now the scanning option is grayed out in the upper right and I am unable to scan. Any suggestions? It is hard wired to my iMac. The scanner utiltiy is grayed out under "window" in the menu as well. I am able to print jobs just fine, so the MG7520 is connected. Any suggestions?

Re: MG7520 won't scan



Try installing the latest CUPS Printer Driver, ICA Driver and IJ Scan Utility to get the scanner up and running.  The downloads are available at the following link:

The IJ Scan Utility is in the "Software" section of the Drivers & Downloads page.
